I am reading SHILOH by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor.
The book introduces me to Marty Preston an 11-year-old country boy who lives in West Virginal with his family.
Marty is part of a poor but very loving family. His parents have rules that Marty and his two younger sisters Becky and Dara Lynn must follow.
A hard rule for Marty to follow is “no pets”. His parents do not have enough money to feed another person or animal. This gives Marty a
dilemma when he meets a beagle dog up in the hills of his hometown.
After Marty whistles to the dog they become friends. The dog does not want to go home to its owner Judd Travers. Marty thinks Judd Travers has mistreated the dog that he names Shiloh because he has a reputation for being mean and abusing his animals.
• Marty speaks with a southern accent. He calls his mother, “Ma”. The style of the language is very different to me.
• Marty named the dog “SHILOH” because he found him near the Shiloh schoolhouse.
• I felt sad when Marty returned Shiloh to Judd Travers. I wish Shiloh could live with Marty and his family.
